Engaging with art helps to foster empathy, the ability to understand or feel the experience of others. Join one of of our specially trained guides on this discussion-based tour which focuses on specific works in the collection which may be capable of evoking emotion and inspiring empathy.

Free but bookings essential – numbers are strictly limited as the guides will be running small groups to enable discussion to take place.

Due to current advice on public gatherings, please contact the host of this event to confirm it is proceeding as planned.
